How would you paraphrase a sentence of the "He is very kind - or is he?" type?
Does it sound right?

    Hmmm ... it would depend.

    A) He is very kind, isn't he?
    B) He is very kind, is he not?

    Those are positive.

    C) He is very kind, or does he just seem to be?

    That is more negative and doubting.
